Monday was the 4 H Holiday Craft workshop. It was split into two sessions, a morning session for younger children and an afternoon session for older children. Nick and Alex and I volunteered to help with the morning session so Lily, Christian, and Emmie were with us and just were going to kill time until after lunch. But, two people that signed up for the morning session did not show up so there were two sets of extra materials so Lily and Emmie got to make the extra crafts rather then have the supplies go to waste (Christian was fine with that.)
They made a snowman, a gumball machine ornament, a button tree ornament, a wood slice ornament, and decorated an ornament with a piece of ribbon inside that was the measure of the child.
We went and had lunch and headed back for the afternoon. They decorated a picture frame with buttons and designs, did an embroidery hoop stencil craft, a snowflake button ornament, and a tree out of mason jar rings.
We had to rush out at the end because Emmie had been complaining of ear pain for over a week so I made her an appointment. He didn't find anything wrong with the ear or sinuses or anything else, but prescribed some drops that I hoped would help. Still bot sure what is going on but she hasn't complained as much this week.
Tuesday we picked up Chelsea, Liam, and Willow and went to see Frozen 2. It was not as good as the first one but it was a really good movie and everyone enjoyed it.

Wednesday we were busy baking pies and desserts for Thanksgiving.
Thursday was Thanksgiving!
Friday morning at 3:00 am Nick left for 4 H National Congress in Atlanta. He comes home Tuesday night. I haven't heard much from him but have seen some pictures on Facebook and one of the chaperones texted this one to me.
Saturday we started decorating for Christmas. We hope to get a tree this week.
Lily, Christian, and Emmie have spent a ton of time outside this week. They have been out almost all day every day when it wasn't raining (and even spent some time on the porch when it was) making and playing in a fort they made and just playing.

I hope you had a great week!
